Join Hackney’s ICT Service

At Hackney Council we’ve been on a journey of digital transformation, bringing ICT services in-house; launching a pioneering apprenticeship programme; modernising workplace technologies; introducing a ‘cloud unless’ strategy; restructuring around product teams that design, build and support digital services; growing our user centred design community; and initiating sector-leading data and analytics work.

There have been huge challenges. Along with other councils, we’ve responded to the pandemic and the extraordinary demands of lockdown, alongside the challenges posed by the dual housing and cost of living crises, as well as recovering from a serious criminal cyberattack in 2020.

Joining Hackney, you’ll be working in agile teams with a product focus, that take a user-centred approach to design, and harness technologies like cutting edge cloud computing platforms to transform local public services.

We’ve recently completed work to restructure our service and are now hiring ambitious people who care about delivering good public services, and want to use their technology, digital and design skills to make a real difference for our communities.

This is an exciting opportunity to make a real impact. We know that to deliver real, long-term change and transformation for residents, we need teams of talented, innovative and forward-thinking IT, digital and design professionals to help us achieve this.

We’ve built a strong team with over 150 roles. From autumn 2023, we’re beginning our biggest recruitment drive to-date, and hiring to roles at all levels, from Associate to Assistant Director, in a variety of disciplines including:
